Song Lyrics

Runnin' away, runnin' away
Hey, hey, hey, runnin' away

I had the perfect girl
We'd spend together, hours everyday
You could say that I had it made, made
And I was all for the commitment

But then she started wantin' more from me
And my mind began to change
Suddenly I didn't feel the same
I didn't know what I was doin'

I was dodgin' commitment
Start but don't finish
My M.O. was always the same girl
I know I've been trippin'

I'm confessin', I'm confessin'
So, baby, just hear me out
I'm confessin', I'm confessin'
So, baby, just hear me out
I wanna show my heart
But I don't know where to start

So I keep runnin' with real love in my face
Why am I breakin' away?
I keep runnin', so scared of the heartbreak
So scared of makin' mistakes

I keep runnin' when all I really need is you
All I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away
Runnin' away, hey, hey, hey

I caught a second wind of happiness
When I met this girl
And then we became the best of friends
We went from half full to half empty

I took a detour tryin' to find myself
But I'm on this road again
Want out of this box I'm in
I made it harder to be with me

I was dodgin' commitment
Start but don't finish
My M.O. was always the same girl
I know I've been trippin'

I'm confessin', I'm confessin'
So, baby, just hear me out
I'm confessin', I'm confessin'
So, baby, just hear me out
I wanna show my heart
But I don't know where to start

So I keep running' with real love in my face
Why am I breakin' away?
I keep runnin', so scared of the heartbreak
So scared of makin' mistakes

I keep runnin' when all I really need is you
All I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away
Runnin' away, hey, hey, hey

I'm 'bout to break down, baby, I'm done
No, I can't keep up runnin' this marathon
No need to rest when I already won
And if I got you by my side, girl, I already won

It's like lookin' for a treasure
When it's already mine
It don't make sense, don't make sense
No matter how hard I try to define

I'm comin' face to face with myself
I know I don't need, don't need no one else
So, can somebody tell me where I'm goin'?
So, can somebody tell me where I'm goin'?

I keep runnin' with real love in my face
Why am I breakin' away?
I keep runnin', so scared of the heartbreak
So scared of makin' mistakes

I keep runnin' when all I really need is you
All I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away

I keep runnin' with real love in my face
Why am I breakin' away?
I keep runnin', so, scared of the heartbreak
So scared of makin' mistakes

I keep runnin' when all I really need is you
All I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away
Runnin' away, hey, hey, hey

Runnin' away
Runnin' away, hey, hey, hey
Runnin' away
Runnin' away, hey, hey, hey
